The "Add New" Configuration Button

A-Suite has added an "Add New" button to its several of its dropdown menus that allows you to create a new entry to the menu if it does not exist already.

For example, if you are in the process of creating a new Location and need to add a new Region to house the new Location, you can do that right from within the "Create Location" dialog box - speficially, the Region dropdown menu.

This feature is available for most configuration settings, including:

  • Job
  • Location
  • Region
  • Super Region
  • Record Type
  • Record Folder
  • Employee Group

It is not available for creating a new Position or a Position Opening.

Just like with any record-keeping activity, it's important to avoid creating duplicate or similar-sounding categories. Be sure to coordinate with other A-Suite users within your company so that your terminology is consistent; that way, you will not end up with locations like "Eastern US" and Eastern USA," for example.
